The famed improvisation game with Lenny Henry, Dawn French, John Sessions and Stephen Fry.

The panel game where four guests try to outwit with eachother through improvisation

It ran for 10 series on Channel 4 and found success in America, but the hit TV improvisation game actually started life on BBC radio.

When it began in January 1988, this show adopted a format with two regular team captains - Fry and Sessions and two guests each week, with Colin Sell at the piano.

In this first edition of the pioneering series, John Sessions, Dawn French, Stephen Fry and Lenny Henry are tasked to improvise by series chairman Clive Anderson.

Rounds include ghastly guests at a party and Goldilocks and the Three Bears performed as never before.

Devised and compiled by Mark Leveson. Additional material by Martin Booth.

Producer: Dan Patterson.
